Developers prefer to use Mobile App Hosting to build mobile apps. Mobile Cloud Hosting helps developers to manage their implementation and applications. With high demand of mobile application, developers likely to choose Mobile Cloud Hosting to help them develop application faster.
Cloud hosting is also termed as clustered hosting. It’s a hosting service that is delivered from a network of multiple and physically connected servers. There are many types of hosting available among Cloud Hosting Providers; cloud hosting is a new form of hosting. It enables the clients to host their websites in a more powerful, reliable, and scalable way.
In addition to the concept of cloud website hosting server, it also means that the website will not experience any downtime as it is the case with traditional server hosting. Cloud server hosting is extremely useful because it does not restrict people to the limit of application and hardware. The main advantage of cloud website hosting is the reliability that comes from the use of a group of servers rather than just relying on one. Even the space will be limited in traditional hosts that will slow down your site. However, with cloud server hosting, you will not encounter any of these problems because users will get extra power and resources and with this you can successfully run your business over the internet and enjoy unhindered connectivity. Cloud website hosting is best for small business, growing business, and mid-enterprises.
Tizen a new Operating System that has just been popular in developers make debut as one of OS in successful smartphone providers. Samsung is one of companies with highest sales of Android devices in the world. Android devices made by Samsung is used by billion people in the world. It’s not surprising if someone associate Android Smartphone with Samsung Galaxy. Along with Intel and the Linux Foundation Samsung develops its own mobile operating system to reduce to reduce its dependence on Android and Google.
There are few Tizen Mobile Backend App around. Because Tizen is pretty new, developers are still figuring out about Tizen. Tizen strongly supports developers who build applications using HTML5. Even the official guidelines for developing applications using HTML5 on Tizen has been available since it is released. Different with Android, Google officially supports Android application development using Java. To develop Android apps using HTML5, you have to use a third-party developer.
Developing applications for Tizen can be achieved by using Tizen SDK. Tizen SDK consists of a set of tools for developing native applications and web. SDK released in developer.tizen.org consists of IDE, Emulators, code samples, and documentation. Tizen SDK can be used in Windows, Ubuntu Linux, and Mac OS X. IDE in Tizen SDK is actually Eclipse that has been customized to ease developers developing applications for Tizen. If you do not want to use Tizen IDE, we can still develop Tizen application as long as it follows Tizen terms and condition.
With various implementation of Internet of Things, IoT developers are competing to build their own IoT Devices. With a huge market, there are more and more devices launched each year. How developers compete with other developers are by using IoT Platform to make their development process faster.
It is because IoT Platform provides various features such as:
Real Time Storage Data – Internet of Things technology needs integration with data storage (Cloud Storage), where data storage from sensor or data from other devices need a real time data storage. It is because IoT’s main focus is data streaming.
IoT Protocol Connection – Protocol Internet of Things from every device might be different. This makes developer must do many changes and data conversions.
Data Processing – Internet of Things is focused on faster data processing to make a real time data insight.
Analytic’s – Statistic processing and data management by various data connections and hardwares have to make a result about accurate data analytic.
These basic features in IoT Platform can be useful for developers to connect and manage the device. With the features, developers also able to manage their user and checking the device performance.
Industrial Internet of Things is simply another variety of IoT implementations. Made for the big one such as industry or company needs and basic needs that’s used in major implementation. It’s basically still Internet of Things but for corporation and manufacturing. Currently, iBeacon Technology is used as one of the implementations.
The intelligent instruments that are connected to the Internet and can think in Industrial Internet of Things will create a revolution in industry. Beacon Bluetooth which was introduced on 2014 by Apply is also one of devices that can be implemented in Industrial Internet of Things too.
Here are some implementations of Beacon Bluetooth for Industrial Internet of Things:
1. Smart Home
Some homes have installed thermostat which can control lamp or air conditioner. But with IoT it could be so much better. It could detects intruder or at least non family member who’s sneaking to your house. With motion sensors, glass breaks detector, and door/windows detector home owner will be alerted if there’s some intruders activity inside the house.
2. Smart Logistics
Thousands of products such as medicines and food must be sorted and transported at low temperatures. With IoT truck can manage these temperatures itself. By detecting temperatures, any changes will be detected and it can switch the temperatures inside the truck.
3. Smart Lighting
Lighting accounts 19% of global electricity use. For example Europe pays over €10 billion each year to power street lights. With IoT that creates Smart Lighting, it could save more energy used. Intelligent street lighting dims when no activity is detected, but brightens when movement is detected. Saving world’s energy and earth.
iBeacon adalah salah satu protokol komunikasi yang dirilis oleh Apple,inc. iBeacon sendiri merupakan teknologi yang memungkinkan penyebaran informasi lewat Bluetooth menuju perangkat-perangkat mobile yang berada di lokasi sekitar. Teknologi ini sangatlah bermanfaat terutama untuk keperluan industri atau enterprise. Biasanya perusahaan forwarding dan trucking menggunakan ibeacon identifikasi, tracking, tagging termasuk microlocation.
Di Indonesia tepatnya di kota Surabaya, sebuah startup Eyro Digital Teknologi telah sukses mengembangkan sebuah pemancar Bluetooth mengikuti standar iBeacon sekaligus memaksimalkan potensi iBeacon technology. Pemancar Bluetooth IBeacon yang kemudian diberi nama Cubeacon ini berbentuk kubus kecil yang di dalamnya tersimpan chip Bluetooth 4.0 yang bisa menjangkau perangkat mobile dengan radius 100 meter serta baterai kancing standar dengan estimasi daya tahan hingga 2 tahun. Lalu seperti apakah alat pemancar iBeacon bernama Cubeacon ini?
Perusahaan ini termasuk perusahaan produsen ibeacon yang memiliki kualitas terbaik, dan memberikan layanan yang lebih abik dari pada perusahaan dan brand dari China. Cubeacon sendiri memberikan perangkat dengan standart iBeacon dari Apple, selain itu mereka juga menyediakan platfrom Backend as a service, untuk membantu para deveoper dalam melakukan implementasi.
Selain itu Cubeacon juga sering sekali mengadakan developer meetup dan membantu implementasi di lapangan, dan membantu bisnis proses dan komersialisasi dari pengguna ibeacon yang bekerjasama, hal ini ditandai adanya rekrutmen developer program, dimana indie developer boleh mendaftar sebagai rekanan. Dan tidak tertutup kemungkinan bagi perusahaan besar untuk bergabung.
Implementasi iBeacon Bluetooth Low Energy
Di Indonesia, teknologi iBeacon biasa digunakan untuk kalangan industri. Selain teknologi juga lebih efektif dari pada RFID/NFC devices baik yang RFID Aktif atau pasif. Mungkin bila dalam harga devices, iBeacon (Cubeacon Card + Reader) mungkin terasa lebih mahal, namun bila di kombinasi kan dalam harga development infrastruktur, iBeacon Teknologi mungkin lebih mudah,
Selain itu Reader nya juga bisa menggunkan smartphone biasa, artinya adalah : proses implementasi di lapangan akan jauh lebih fleksibel. Dari apda menggunakan RFID yang mengharus kan menggunakan reader khusus, mungkin RFID Reader juga terdapat pada beberapa smartphone high end, namun iBeacon dengan Bluetooth jauh lebih mudah lagi digunakan untuk berbagai keperluan industri.
Selain flesibelitas tekonlogi dan infrastruktur, iBeacon juga banyak dilakukan untuk berbagai keperluan untuk menunjang proses produksi.
Perkembangan IoT (Internet of things) juga menjadi salah satu terbentuknya implementasi iBeacon terhadap kebutuhan sarana prasarana, dan konsep Smart City. Bila Anda seorang developer smart city tentunya akan menjadi perhatian penting akan teknologi yang satu ini.
Kajian tentang smart city dan IOT dengan mengggunakan teknologi iBeacon juga sudah mulai banyak di kaji. Dan banyak sekali lini kebutuhan yang bisa mengguanakn teknologi iBeacon ini. Selain kemudahan nya harga device iBeacon cenderung tidak terlalu mahal
iBeacon is getting stronger now. With the hype of almost every year there are more innovations involving iBeacon technology and not just in retail but it is currently developing to smart environment such as airport.
iBeacon Technology which was introduced by Apple on 2014 made their debut as a device that will deliver push notification, promos, and discount to the customer in a store. There are startups who build their device with iBeacon and there are also more enterprise that launch their own beacon.
A beacon is working using Bluetooth version 4 or bluetooth low energy. This makes less battery spent when it’s connected to a smartphone. That way a user can be connected as long as they want without having to worry that it will consumes their smartphone battery a lot.
iBeacon is simply working as a transmitter. The reader can be a smartphone or developer can build a reader for their device. The management of iBeacon can be done in a backend platform. Most iBeacon startups provides the backend to set up along with the device.
This makes developers can build their device easily since backend also provide them with SDK or Software Developer Kit. The SDK is the core to implement iBeacon technology to any apps.
Developer now building more solution using iBeacon. Especially in Industrial Internet of Things. iBeacon itself is able to work in tracking and logistic. This makes industry can have use of it with its accuracy and micro location implementation.
Currently, the industry has been using RFID as their asset management. While RFID price itself is expensive in terms of price and maintenance, iBeacon can be a solution for the low cost and easy to implement device. Beside iBeacon cost itself is affordable, the reader of iBeacon can be using a smartphone whic is easier since everybody has smartphone now.
